Week 2 of the auditions on America’s Got Talent 2017 takes place tonight. We had a strong start to the audition rounds on America’s Got Talent Season 12 last week, but can it continue this week? We will find out soon enough, but hopefully the AGT judges 2017 (Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel) don’t just let everyone through again! Check it out with us during our America’s Got Talent 2017 Auditions Recap for Week 2 on AGT 2017!
Last week on America’s Got Talent Season 12, we kicked off a new season of auditions! The AGT Premiere brought us a new face, as Tyra Banks took over as host from Nick Cannon It might take some time getting used to that change. While there were some good auditions in the mix, I feel like the judges were being too nice. They basically said everyone was so unique and something they have never seen before. Start paying attention then, as we have! In the end, we saw Darcie Lynne audition and she got the Golden Buzzer. Was she worthy of it though?

We start the night, as we watch all of the judges roll in on motorcycles. Of course, Simon Cowell how a whole entourage with him, since that is how he rolls. Howie Mandel is missing, but then he rolls in on a little, tiny motorcycle because that is how he rolls! Now lets get to these auditions on America’s Got Talent 2017!
Edna Moore with Mia Moore
Edna said that Mia is the love of her life. She said that Mia was born to be a mathematician. She comes out and tells the judges to give her a number and Mia can count. So, Howie said four and Mia is slow, but then barks four times! Simon says 16 and Mia barks 16 times! Tyra Banks comes out with flashcards and picks one, which says 20. Edna shows Mia the card and Mia proceeds to bark 20 times! Um, what?
JUDGES’ THOUGHTS – Simon said this is like a new species of dog and he is blown away. Mel B said she has never seen like that before. Heidi said she loves this act and Mia and it was a lot of fun. It is four yes votes!
They are an architecture movement company. They dance with architecture. They are using a 3,000-pound prop tonight on AGT 2017. So, when that moves, they have to move with it! It was boring at first and just the prop moving along the middle and then dancing on it and around it. However, they start bringing out the tricks and get that prop moving and it is pretty fun and awesome to watch!
JUDGES’ THOUGHTS – Howie said they took it beyond the next level and has not seen anything like it in his life. Heidi said they showed them something different. Mel B said it was so exciting. It was too short and needed to be much longer. Simon said this was really clever and this is something he will remember. Of course, it is four yes votes!
He is 21 years old, but looks like he is about 12! Chase was a shy guy growing up, but once he started music lessons, he could express himself. This turned into him writing songs, which he will perform one of them tonight. He is definitely giving off an Ed Sheeran vibe. He starts slow, but then all of a sudden goes into some rapping skills. Yeah, where did that come from??? He just entered a whole new level at that point and he was awesome!
JUDGES’ THOUGHTS – Howie said they look for these moments that surprise them. When he started rapping, it was a unique sound that he will never forget. Heidi said she loved his sound and he is cute too. Simon said it was bloody fantastic. It felt real and he is a great writer. Mel B said he is a great songwriter and the way he did it was spot-on! Another four yes votes on America’s Got Talent 2017!
Well, he looks a little crazy! Apparently he met his dance partner online. This is a difficult act and they spend hours practicing. He comes out and said they are hand balancers. His partner is not there yet, but then she is lowered from the ceiling, Yeah, it is a blowup doll! This is a joke and he is crazy.
JUDGES’ THOUGHTS – Howie said this was comical and this was hysterical. Heidi said she does not mind the partner, but he needed to do something that was wow. Mel B said it was hilarious. Simon said when was the lightbulb moment when he realized he would do a dance with a blowup doll. Howie was definitely fighting for him, but Heidi and Simon said no and they are headed home!
Artyon & Paige
They are 8 years old and dancers. If they won the $1 million, she would get frozen yogurt and a mansion. He would get a shark and go to Disney World every day. They are cute and they have some good dance moves in there. The girl is a total ham on that stage, but Simon hits his X button. They are cute and good, but I would say winning the show worthy.
JUDGES’ THOUGHTS – Heidi said they are so well rehearsed and she loved it. Simon said she likes them and they are talented, but they need a lot more experience. Mel B said she loved it and loved the song choice. Howie said he loved their moves and their faces and expressions. Simon is a no, but the other judges on America’s Got Talent 2017 say yes and they are moving on!
Nick was a contestant on Big Brother! He makes science videos for the internet and said there is no stage bigger than this. He starts by giving the judges all a balloon with a form of helium in it. They suck in the air and it changes their voices deeper and it is so funny! He does a couple more experiments with the help of Howie and Mel B, as they blow up some things. The experiments were cool and exciting, but Nick’s personality was not the best. He needed more pizzazz!
JUDGES’ THOUGHTS – Howie said he thought what he did was wonderful. Mel B said she really wants him to come back and make Howie disappear. It is four yes votes and he is coming back on AGT 2017!
Billy & Emily England
They are brother and sister who happen to do rollerskating and acrobats. Simon actually met them two years ago on Britain’s Got Talent. He said he has always hoped they would come over and show America what they can do, as they live here now. This is the second brother-sister act that is a little too close and friendly for me! He definitely whips her around while rollerskating! Like, I don’t think she knows where she is at after that routine!
JUDGES’ THOUGHTS – Howie said people at home don’t realize how dangerous that is for the judges, as they are so close! Mel B said what just happened??? Heidi said she has never seen anything like this before and they are both nice to look at. Simon said this act is death-defying. This is even better than when he first saw them. It is four yes votes!
She is 9 years old and so adorable. She said she wants to be the next Whitney Houston. Angelica had kidney issues when she was 4 years old and her parents are glad she is even here, but her mother gave her a kidney. How is this girl only 9 years old? Her voice is beyond amazing and so mature. I am in love!
JUDGES’ THOUGHTS – Simon said this shouldn’t actually happen. She is tiny and her voice is huge. Heidi said she had goosebumps everywhere and her being a superstar might happen. Mel B said she is so special and her voice is so amazing. Howie said not only is she in it, but he predicts all of her dreams are going to come true. Four yes votes!
They are brothers and apparently don’t talk much. And they are scary people. They start out with nails. The one puts it through a piece of wood four times. Then we have the other brother use his head (and hand as a cushion) to pound the nail into the wood. Then one of the brothers lays on a pile of nails and then put a holder with nails and stands on his chest! They bring up an audience member and have him step on a shovel, which happens to be in the one guy’s throat. This is just crazy.
JUDGES’ THOUGHTS – Heidi said that was disgusting and horrible to watch. Howie said it was like a buffet of torture. Simon said it was disgusting, but he loved it. Howie said it was too much and too far. Howie did not love it, but the audience loved it and he voted for them. They get three yes votes and moving on!
He claims to be the real life Sherlock Holmes, as he reads people. He said it is the closest thing to a mind reading. Colin starts out by guessing two audience members’ occupations. He has Howie hide a coin in his hand and picks the right hand. He does it with all the judges and picks the right hand. Earlier, he had Tyra join him on the stage and gave her a scroll and she sits on a box. He had the audience pick an animal, color and name. Inside the box is a white cat with a name tag of Oscar, which is all what the audience picked. Yeah, because he didn’t just chose them on his own and said that is what the audience picked. Stupid act!
JUDGES’ THOUGHTS – Howie said he is mesmerized. Heidi loves him and thinks he is fantastic. Simon said he thinks they can become partners and take over the world. Mel B said he was mesmerizing. It is four yes votes on America’s Got Talent 2017!
She comes out and has an interpreter with her. She lost all her hearing when she was 18 years old. Mandy is now 29 years old. In college, she thought she had an ear infection. It turned out it was an infection and her hearing just got worse from there. She always wanted to sing and felt everything she ever wanted was gone now. She takes off her shoes, as she feels the vibration from the music to sing. She sings an original song called “Try.” She has a great voice and definitely has that indie vibe, which I love. The audience gives her a standing ovation!
JUDGES’ THOUGHTS – Simon said she is not going to need a translator for this, as he hits the Golden Buzzer for her! He said it was one of the most amazing things he has seen and heard. He never thinks he is going to be surprised and amazed by people and then she shows up. Mandy is headed straight to the live shows on America’s Got Talent 2017!
